Comments about Electro-Voice ELX118P - 18" Live X Powered Subwoofer:

The Electro Voice ELX118P is the self powered speaker you need to enhance the low end of your sound system. This subwoofer packs an impressive 1000 watts into this enclosure. It sounds great and is a no brainer for DJs and bands looking to upgrade their sound system. This is a real hands on product review from Ryan@ Sam Ash King of Prussia.

        I've used 2 of these for my smaller mobile setup and I think they sound amazing ! The wood cabinet is not as heavy as some other subs I've used. The built in crossover makes it a dream to pair with the Live X ELX115P's. This subwoofer makes the bass boom !

              If your DJ sets or live band performances have been missing that extra oomph, look no further. This sub is going to have your venue shaking, whether it's a club, a church, or a live music hall. If you are on the road a lot, you have not to worry about breaking your back, it's only 70 pounds. Even if that is a little too much, just throw this on your cart and don't worry about breaking that either.

                A huge Sub sound and only about 70 pounds. Portable power that's great for any DJ, Band, or House of worship. Strongly recommended for the gigging DJ that wants an honest low frequency, and a easy set up. This is a real hands on product review from Hodari @ Sam Ash Lombard

                  EV is good. EV is always well priced and this cabinet is no exception in regard to that. However, if you want low-end that bangs and you want to FEEL the bass, then this is the sub for you. At the $799 price point, it is by-far the best sub in it's class. The ease of use and the great sound OUT OF THE BOX, makes this cab not easy to beat. I have recommended this to a lot of people one on one and i am now telling you (the world) that you will not be disappointed.
